This is the latest installment of a regular feature here at SleepBetter.org: Sleep Myth Monday, where we bust sleep myths wide open, or verify that they’re true.

If so, try one of the new type of bedding products that stay cool all night long, which will help keep your body cool. For more information, go to our Recommended Sleep Products page and select the Iso•Cool product line.
